Guys, I have a serious problem with the FX4. Since I received it I haven’t been able to fully trust it. I turn on the MOD DUO, it takes a while to enter the predefined settings. While I’m using it, it freezes, but it doesn’t seem like it has, the buttons continue to light up the LEDs but the effects don’t turn on or off. I almost have heart attacks in the middle of the song. I had to put bypass control on my MIDI controller, to turn everything off and minimize the problem. So for it to come back to life I often need to restart the entire pedalboard… and sometimes it doesn’t even come back (in this case it appears FOOT1, FOOT2… ETC… As if it wasn’t recognized by the MOD DUO).
I don’t know if it’s a hardware problem… the ports or the cable.
I tested several RJ45 connectors and the same thing happens in all of them. Lately I was using the cable that comes with the FX4, even though it was extremely short, which I solved by placing the MOD on a floor above and in front of the Fx4 (can you use it any other way?)… in order to eliminate the chance of cable, but without success either.
About the problems already discussed in the FORUM:
- Power supply: I am running the MOD with a hive power supply with more capacity.
- INFORMATION ON THE FX4 DISPLAYS: I leave the names that will be shown on the displays with the minimum number of characters (DLY, REV, CHOR, Wmmy … etc…) at the end.
- I usually leave the same foots for effects that are repeated on pedalboards.
Anyway, is there any way to test the fx4’s outputs and inputs? What do you advise?
I’m using the latest firmware available, both for the MOD and the FX4.
Remembering that the defect doesn’t appear all the time… but when it does (usually in the middle of presentations) it sometimes doesn’t come back to life.
Is there any way to report errors… or to know the reason for the connection failure? …
It has also happened that the FX4 has all the LEDs colored…and is stuck.
What to do?
